IT WAS] night. One of our
citizens was walking through the
park. "Hear the little wavelets
gently lap the beach," murmured
a masculine voice just ahead. "I
think it's just lovelyJ oJie.J.n-lap
land,"came the soft reply. A
bench creaked. The thoughtful
citizen cut across to the sidewalk.
It should bo seen to that the
benches in the park are placed
farther from the pathway.
HE Constantinople corres
pondent of the SLondon Times
says that Great Britianhas made
vigorous and constant protests
against the excesses committed
by the Turkish troops, but that
she apparantly does not feel her
self strong enough to break
down the opposition of Germany,
Russia and Austria and insist on
real, instead ofj pauer, reforms
in Macedonia.
WE WILL, (now look to "the
poet's corner" to give us some
thing on the autumn leaves. We
would suggest the following line
as a starter:
The autumn days have come,
the gladdest of the year, etc.
I ON any ofjthese fine Indian
summer days you happen to feel
that you would like to be some,
place besides Bemidji, just take
a walk up the lake shore.
P. S.This was written yes
terday.
"BEAUTIFUL Bemidji, the town
of sidewalk signs, rotten side
walks and roulette wheels," said
a traveling man the other day as
he turned and left a wheel pf
fortune and $15.
THE fish story harvest is over
with and there seems to be no
danger of a second crop this
season. It is now a case of the
man behind the gun.
YE S, Maudie, dear, it is per
fectly correct to say, "Skunks
are measely |thmgs." Measles
are contagious, you know.
MAYBE the world isn't a bluff,
but it's a dead sure thing that
most of the successful people in
it are bluffers.
No, Jessie, dear, the hunter
does not necessarily use gunny
sacks to pack his provisions in.
HE leaves are falling. As yet
the council has taken no action
in the matter.
WINTER will soon be here, but
when it comes we will not have
to dodge awnings.
The New Chinese Minister.
Rev. William E. Griffls corrects a
published statement that Sir Chen
tung Liang Cheng, the new Chinese
minister, is a graduate of Yale. He
merely studied there, being one of
120 students brought to this country
by Yung Wing. The minister ex
plains that the first part of his name,
Cbentung, corresponds to the Ameri
can John. The middle part, his fam
ily name, Is pronounced Leeang. His
title, about which there has been a
good deal of talk, was bestowed by
the British government after the au
thorities of his own country had con
sented that he acre"* it.
Milky Sea Is a Puzzle.
The milky sea, as it is known to
mariners, Is not yet fully understood.
It seems to be most common in tne
tropical waters of the Indian ocean,
and is described as weird, ghastly and
awe-inspiring, and as giving the ob
server on shipboard the sensation of
passing through a sort of luminous
fog In which sea and sky seem to join
and all sense of distance is lost The
phenomenon is probably due to some
form of phosphorescence.
MOB RILES TOW!
EMPLOYES OF THE CONSOLIDA-
TED SUPERIOR COMPANY
IN A RIOT.
ATTACK ON OENtRAL OfflCES
ARMED TROOPS FINALLY RE
STORE A SEMBLANCE OF
ORDER.
MORE TROOPS ARE ORDERED OUT
THEIR COMING AWAITED WITH
FEVERISH IMPATIENCE BY
CITIZENS.
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Sept. 20.
The situation in the Canadian Soo,
which has been the scene of serious
rioting by the discharged employes of
the Consolidated Lake Su'.^rior com
pany, is very grave. An assault upon
the office building by the mob early
yesterday afternoon before the ar
rival on the ground of troops was suc
cessful, and a mass of frenzied men
secured possession of the ground floor
of the building, destroying everything
movable that came in their path. A
crowd of the olftce staff with drawn re
volvers prevented their gaining ac
cess to the upper floors of the building.
Every window and door in the build
ing is smashed in. The arrival of the
troops on the ground armed with ball
cartridges about 2 o'clock served to
restore
Some Semblance of Order.
The rioters then contented themselves
with throwing stones at the building
and hurling investives at the soldiers,
who established a "dead line" and pre
vented any approach toward the
building by any of the rioters. The
greatest number of the mob are of ig
norant Italians, Finns, Norwegians
and Frenchmen, the latter perhaps
the hardest of all to handle. All have
been drinking more or less, although
the bars finally obeyed the order to
close up. The mob is one that cannot
be reasoned with, and the man they
seem most anxious to get at is Mr.
Coyne, the assistant manager, who,
in the absence of Mr. Shields, is in
charge of the works. Mr. Coyne has
discreetly kept out of sight.
Late yesterday afternoon the lead
ers of the mob held a conference and
demanded that the company house the
men in their hotel and boarding house
and feed them until the money for
their
Wages Is Forthcoming.
In order to appease the crowd this de
mand was granted and the men have
taken possession of the white house, a
large boarding house operated by the
company.
Considerable feeling has been
aroused over the shooting of two
Frenchmen by the police during the
trouble yesterday morning. The riot
ers say that the officers used their re
volvers when it was unnecessary.
Neither of the men is fatally hurt,
however.
The mob threatens an attack on po
lice headquarters with a view of ef
fecting the release of all the men who
have been arrested. Both this build
ing and that occupied by the fire de
partment is guarded against attack.
The problem yesterday's develop
ment has created is beyond the solu
tion of any of the company officials on
the ground. Apparently their only
hope is that the anger of the mob will
spend itself and that the men will
Get Out of Town by Degrees.
A mass meeting of the men was held
in the "white house" last night and
was quiet and orderly. An attempt
was made to allay the passions of the
men by an offer made by the Brother
hood of Woodsmen, an organization
maintained among the lumbermen, to
furnish an attorney free of charge to
collect all pay checks left in his hands.
The meeting broke up without any
particular confusion or disorder.
An effort was made late yesterday
to get a body of the rioters to cross
the river to the American side and
put the power house and street railway
out of commission, but it was not suc
cessful. A battalion of regulars from
Toronto, the King's Grenadiers, are
expected to arrive to-day, and their
coming is awaited with feverish impa
tience. Another company of militia
from Sudbury is expected.

and there was great danger of a

prevented further fatalities.

There Is Land
Still Left in
the Northwest
And the Northern Pacific has a new and very Low Rate
for Colonists and Homeseekers in effect from September
15 to November 30, 1903.
This gives the Farmers a good chance to go homeseeking,
after crops are harvested, or any others who wish to move
into the growing, teeming, improving Northwest to visit
it at a trifling expense.
The finest valleys in the Northwest, good for grain, hay,
fruits, root crops, for mixed, stock or dairy farming, for
irrigation or not, as one wishes, are found along the
Northern Pacific or its branch or connecting lines. The
growing, thriving towns are found there, too. It is a
great country.

Trees and Novels.
Nine successful novels recently pub
lished in the United States had a total
sale of over 1,600,000 copies. Since
the average weight of each book sold
was probably tAventy ounces, a little
calculation will prove that these 1,60.0,-
0CO books contained approximately
2,000,000 pounds of paper. A manu
facturer of paper asserts that the aver
age spruce tree yields a little less than
half a cord of wood, which is equiva
lent to about 500 pounds of paper. In
other words these nine novels swept
away 4,008 trees and they form but
a small part of the fiction so eagerly
read by the American people.
Monument to Rjmsey.
An effort will be made to secure an
appropriation from the West Virginia
legislature for the purpose of erecting
a monument to the memory of James
Rumsey, who, it is claimed, was recog
nized by George Washington as the in
ventor of the steamboat. The pro
posed memorial will be erected on a
high cliff of the Potomac river at
Shepherdstown, overlooking the spot
where it is alleged that the first ap
plication of steam to the purpose of
marine propulsion was made.Scien
